Croatia 6/5 to beat Iceland in Tuesdays World Cup clash
Competition: World Cup
Market: Croatia win
Odds: 6/5 @ Bet 365
With their spot in the last 16 already confirmed, Group D’s surprise package Croatia will look to carry on their impressive run of form when they face off against Iceland at the Rostov Arena on Tuesday.
For Iceland, despite enjoying an impressive qualifying campaign that saw them secure their spot in Russia with two games to spare, The Blues’ are now on a six-match winless run in all competitions. While they can still mathematically secure their spot in the last 16 with an upset victory, Iceland will travel to the Rostov Arena holding an awful record against their opponents. Iceland have only won one of their six previous games against Croatia (D1, L4), with all of those meetings coming in World Cup qualifying.
As for Croatia, despite finishing two points below Iceland in their World Cup qualifying campaign, The Blazers have now won both of their fixtures in Group D and have already booked their place in the next round. Scoring five and conceding 0 in their two outings, a third win in a row and a fourth in all competitions will secure Croatia top spot. It has been their recent defensive record that has truly caught the eye, the Group D leaders have now recorded a clean sheet in their last three matches and also only shipped four goals in the whole of their qualifying campaign.
